1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    Why did you even bother posting here? You are no help to me, or anyone else who might possibly have the same thoughts about my original question.
    I apologize if my reply to your post somehow did not serve its purpose. I thought the original post was about wearing Sperry Topsiders in a Manhattan winter. I have never seen this, and my opinion is that it cannot be very healthy either, given all the flu going around. THat is all I wished to convey. But if you are in Manhattan--I am sure you know better than me--there are exceptions to the rule. I'm sure you've seen the Naked Cowboy in the dead of a NYC winter..... Best wishes.

    Well, maybe I'm miss understanding something, but what purpose does this statement serve?
    Are you sure you were not drowsy with the fumes of Bacchus or worse while viewing these advertisements?

    Besides for that, I thank you for a thoughtful response the second time around.

    http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=164402 http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=107280 I addition to the links given to you which already covered boat shoes, there are these threads that cater to noobs(as well as others). Use them. Imagine if every single person started a thread about every fleeting thought they had, on topics that already had threads dedicated to them or discussing them. The quality of this forum would be atrocious.

    I agree 100% with everything you say. I apologize if this forum's search is a little difficult for 'noobs' to use. Instead of bashing me because I couldn't find the previous thread, you could've posted these two threads and said, "you're question is answered in there" or "ask in there." But you had to act like twelve year old fat cyber-bully girl, instead of acting as a mature adult would.

    It's not limited to this forum. All forums work like this. I've also been on numerous car boards and noobs get the same treatment.

    When you've been on a particular board for years, you grow tire of seeing the same questions get asked over and over again in form of new threads by you guess it...noobs.

    Very true. I've been on my car forum since 2006 I believe and I have 3,000+/- posts and when a noob asks something that has been answered, a moderator will see it, send the OP a link to the thread about the topic and close the new thread. As simple as that. Where are the moderators on style forum? Why aren't the people who want the best for this forum stepping up to improve how this place runs?

    If you've been on your car forum since '06 then you would know...it changes. Once a car forum is birthed, it is usually good for several years. (Especially true if the car retails for $30k+ because the owners are usually older, and hopefully more mature). Then a couple of years go by, it's time to upgrade and the initial owners leave the board once the car is sold. The once semi expensive cars depreciate, kids buy them as used cars, join the forum, and quality goes down. Same elite attitude applies here. Mediocre brands and mall brands get no love. You aren't doing it unless your sweater is hand knitted and cost over $500 and your jeans are the rarest of all Japanese denim. Just like how replica wheels are hated on car boards and you aren't really doing it unless you got some Japanese wheels or baller American custom made, ie HRE. Of course, I'm exaggerating a bit to make the point obvious, but yeah. There are moderators here, or owners (I believe). I personally don't have a problem with this forum. But again, I don't make new threads like you. I lurked around a bit before joining and find the appropriate threads to post in, ie Temple of Jawnz, Alden.

    The statement had a simple purpose--it was to inquire as to your state of mind when you saw the advertisement you claim to have seen. Since such an advert for Sperry topsiders (or other boat shoes) does not exist, we may assume on of the following: 1. you are lying and making up shit 2. you are misinformed, but innocently so---perhaps inebriated or otherwise incapacitated when you saw the alleged sight 3. you are misinformed, but seriously so and regularly see things which are not real--in which case you would require professional help. My family always taught me to assume someone is always telling the truth unless otherwise provable, so that's 1. out. I am not qualified to judge 3., but others here maybe, so I always steer clear of that one. Which leaves just 2. Hence my inquiry. A perfectly civil and good-intentioned inquiry with absolutely no ill intent.....which has still not been addressed. Best wishes.

    If you don't want to wear socks, then don't. Why do you need the approval from a bunch of dudes on SF? If you want the best of both worlds, then buy some loafer socks. Problem solved, end thread.

    In my opinion the mods on this forum do a better job than most other places. Think of it like a party at someone's home. Some hosts may wish to heavily control the environment, while other hosts will be more willing to let the guests shape it. Not everyone wants it to feel like a police state where a somewhat improper thread is instantly deleted or one wrong comment (said to the wrong person) can get you banned for life. Instead the police are only here to stop the most grievous of trouble makers. If you don't like this, then there are plenty of other heavily controlled forums where the mods love to play cop, forcing all participants to behave in roughly the same manner, causing the forum to feel oddly sterile and one dimensional. Oh and Sperry sucks-- why do people even want to discuss this brand here? As far as boat shoes go, Quoddy and Red Wing tend to be a lot nicer quality.

    What makes you say that?

    Pft, sperrys are fine. Every pair ive owned lasts through 3-4 years of regular wear in spring/summer.
